The Inscribed Angle Theorem

1.) Move the points on the circle. What do you observe?
2.) Explain why your observation will always be true for all angles.

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

Theorem: If an inscribed angle and a central angle has the same intercepted arc, then the measure of the inscribed angle is half that of the measure of the central angle.

I have written a detailed proof of the Inscribed Angle Theorem in Mathematics and Multimedia.
